I have posted lots of times about this, but can't find any for you to refer to he he.
I do have the steroid injections into the ribs. Hardly any pain with the jabs, and they help me tremendously. I am actually going to see a pain management doctor soon. I can't go immediately because I am having my surgery on Thursday coming, and my lupus doctor didn't want any further invasion of my bits going on before this. Hopefully the PM doctor will arrange for further injections, I personally hope so. They really work for me.
Pads warmed and applied to the site are so good. Next to the skin, so not too warm.
Gentle stretching of the affected area, very gentle mind. I find this type of thing to be relaxing and therefore the painful area feels more at ease.
This is just me though. Try it and see, but be careful won't you?
Hope you are doing ok today.
